WHAT IS TIPSY PAINTING?
This is a painting session meant for complete beginners and you don't need to have any prior experience before coming.
The idea originated from our founder's dream from one particular night. Very likely tipsy beforehand, she woke up in an euphoric state and had this idea planted in her mind since her university days. She felt that she was painting without any boundaries and the constant self-doubt from painting was lifted, she just continued non stop and felt an abundant amount of joy from painting. She wanted to bring this energy and experience to more people, hence why this painting idea came about, and was given a catchy and fun name of Tipsy Painting.
As the name speaks, wine will be served while you paint. And nope you won't be too tipsy to paint, it will be just enough for you to enjoy the slight feeling of breaking through barriers of your comfort zones.
For our muslim friends, fret not, as we do have non-alcoholic drinks in the house too!
For this session we will place our focus on a guided painting session where you can paint from our weekly curated painting topics, your inspired artist or even an object that you wish to attempt.
So bring an open mind and we are definitely going have some great amount of fun!
For our Tipsy Painting sessions, we have some fun & vibrant in-house teachers that will make sure you have a lot of fun and learn how to paint at the same time, so you will bring home a complete painting from the session! (we're not intimidating, don't worry LOL)

Carrie believes that creating is as much a gift to the world as it is to oneself. The drive to create makes for almost a divine joy. She has a broad spectrum of disciplines instead of merely sticking to one particular style or medium. Her singular focus instead is on the process of exploring, learning, growing, and making, ever onwards. Every piece is an opportunity for a story, the creation of that story is itself a voyage. As a guru would find himself in his zone during meditative state, Carrie finds that zone through putting brush to canvas.
She is a firm advocate that the gift of creating isn’t confined to “talent”, but the passion to create, and that the more she advocates this message, the more colourful the world becomes; a gift that keeps on giving.
Tech consultant by day, artist by night, Carrie and her artworks were also featured in one of the local news TV programme.

Shamaine is one of our newest instructors and is also the person behind our social media creatives! Ever since a young age, she always found herself designing dresses, illustrating anime characters and doodling on empty pages of her school work book. That was when she found out she was truly passionate about art.
Art has always been her escape from reality. A process that has always been driven by an idea or an emotion. Because of this, she does not have a particular style of painting, as she chooses to give herself the freedom to create what motivates her at the moment of inspiration.
Shamaine currently works in the corporate world, but takes time to pursue her passion for art through her work at MTMT Studios. Also with inspiration and support from @mtmtdesigns, she has also now begun to customise her own shoes!
Check out her instagram at @shamaine_chan for shoes and @__shamaine for her artwork!
Our monthly class schedule will be as below, so pick your preferred instructor and dates to come join in the fun!
